EGR tuned off / wastegate question

I am running the Spartan 250 tune which turns off the EGR, does this also tune out the turbo using the EGR as a wastegate?

I want to do an EGR delete but I am considering the delete with wastegate.. what are your guys thoughts? is it necessary? Anyone have any problems with an EGR delete running a 250 tune?? Thanks

Wastegate is not needed unless you throwing big sticks in your truck and a bigger turbo btw...with a stock pump and injectors you won't need a wastegate, just a delete would be fine...

You don't need a wastegate unless you swap turbos or start throwing big boost/volume at this engine. You're not going to do that with factory turbos and a tuner as far as I know.

So, in other words, just get an EGR delete and don't worry about the wastegate.


It may be your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning for others.

I have stock exhaust tip on mine. I don't like the look of a single pipe coming out one side and I also don't want to spend money on going duals.

Makes it more of a sleeper. Ha!

re: exhaust tips..

mine is vanilla as can be.. I've been searching for a tip that looks like stock but will fit a 4", but can't seem to locate one.. I don't want to cut the one off the stock exhaust I've kept in the garage..

there is going to come a day, I fear, that your local HP will be briefed on what to look for, and all of us with aftermarket tips will be nailed..
